Barbara Katz offers a three-week course on the Georgia essay and Multistate Performance Test (MPT) exam. This course is designed to help students maximize their scores on the Georgia essays and MPT portion of the bar exam.  As part of the course curriculum, students will be assigned essays and MPTs, and will receive individualized written feedback on their graded papers.  Class time will emphasize the best strategy for approaching the test, time management, how to structure the written answers, how to outline the information provided in the MPT, and synthesize the library into a cohesive synthesis of the law.  Some time will be reserved to help individual students create a structure for their studies, manage their available time, and make the best use of the bar review materials at their disposal. 

The next class will be held on three consecutive Saturdays -- January 14, 21 & 28, 2012 -- from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.  The class will meet as a group for approximately 2 hours each week, and then Ms. Katz will hold office hours to meet individually with students and answer specific questions they may have that weren't covered during the class.  Students are encouraged to bring study materials with them, so they can utilize the time until their scheduled individual appointment with Ms. Katz.

Course tuition is $800.00 and must be paid in advance, by personal check, VISA, Mastercard or Discover card.  Class size is limited to eight students.  REGISTRATION FOR THIS CLASS REMAINS OPEN UNTIL CLASS IS FILLED; HOWEVER, REGISTERING EARLY IS IMPORTANT, AS THERE ARE PRE-COURSE ASSIGNMENTS THAT MUST BE COMPLETED PRIOR TO THE FIRST CLASS.

To register, please call 404-298-5050, or email us and, if there is availability, we will send you a registration form.

Comments from previous students who passed the bar:

This e-mail message is sent to inform you that I passed the February 2011 Georgia Bar Examination. I applied everything you taught me in the Exam Prep class. Apparently your methods worked perfectly. My essay score jumped by 20 points (from a past high of 123 to 143. A 143!). I can state for a fact that I would not have achieved this score without your help. Even now, I cannot believe the massive improvement in my exam score. Thank you for your advice. - Darryl (Feb. 2011)

I donít have enough words to express my gratitude. I appreciate all of your help, advice, and words of encouragement. Your lessons and tips is exactly what I need to boost my confidence to go in and attack this test! You always responded to every question with patience and I really needed that. Thank you for being there and helping me move past this last hump! Please continue doing what you do and I will forever be grateful!
-Jessica M. (Feb. 2011)

Barbara's tutoring (July 2007) gave me directed, targeted advice on how to prepare for the essay and MPT portion of the bar exam. I threw out my previously purchased essay prep course books after meeting with her. I did not have an abundance of time on my hands with a new baby but Barbara guided me through the process efficiently...and I passed!
- B. Gearhart

I want to thank you for helping me study for the July (09) Georgia Bar Exam. After two previous failing attempts, I passed, and I am very happy about that. The work we did on essay writing and especially formatting helped me a great deal.  The one-on-one attention (even though I was in D.C.) was great, I am SURE this is what put me over the top. Again, thank you!

- William

I passed! Thank you for all of your help over the summer.  You truly gave me the blueprint to pass!
- Angela

Thank you!  . . . I really appreciated your help and motivation.  It definitely helped as I prepared for the bar. . . .  I'm so glad it is over.  I wish you all the best, and if you ever have a student requesting information about your services, I will gladly serve as a referral. 
- L. Lee

Thank you Barbara.  I certainly don't think I could have done it without you.  I appreciate all of your help, advice, and words of encouragement.  Hopefully one day (if I ever find a job in Atlanta- things are tough out there!), I can take you out to lunch for a proper token of appreciation.
- Kate

Thank you Barbara!!! I sincerely appreciate the help that you offered in your class. CIRAC made much of the difference!!!
- Nicole

I would like to thank you for all the pointers you gave me this past summer!! There is no way I could have passed the exam without your assistance.  I cried for three hours after I saw the certificate. Your expertise allowed me to see exactly where I was lacking in my essays. You also served as a counselor for me and encouraged me to let go of the past failures. In sum, you were an angel to me. I thank God for your unselfishness and I thank God that I passed the Georgia bar. Wow! I am an attorney now.  God is good!!!!!
- K.G.

Ms. Katz also offers private tutoring for the essay and MPT portion of the bar.  However, the three-week course is a prerequisite for any and all private tutoring. 

From 1994 through 2006, Ms. Katz was the program coordinator and writing instructor in the Bar Admissions Court of Study, a Georgia bar review course administered by Georgia State University School of Law.  This course has been suspended indefinitely, although information about the course may still available at its web site
